Why can't you add an announcement to a module?

Jump to solution

I assign weekly modules that I post on Monday and students' work is due on Friday.

I would like to have announcements within the module so students can go to one place (their weekly module) to find everything they need from me.

Unfortunately, Announcements cannot be added to the "Modules" index page of a Canvas course.  They are two separate things.  However, what you *could* do is set your "Modules" to be your "Home" page (the first thing that students see when they log in to your course) and also have a few announcements display above your modules list.

  1. How do I change the Course Home Page? (choose "Course Modules" to make your "Home" page show the modules of your course right away)
  2. How do I show recent announcements in the Course Home Page?

This might not be exactly what you are looking for, but it might be close.  I hope it will work for your needs.  Sing out if you have any questions.  Take care...stay safe...be well.
